Lyrics

Beautiful Boy

 
Like sea, so gray
My skin, it prays
You go away
 You were born a beautiful boy
That turned into a man
A man that showed me how to cry
And no, I don't understand 
Inside I know
This time it's slow
You go away 
You were born a beautiful boy
That turned into a man
A man that showed me how to cry
And no, I don't understand 
You walk away and I follow your footprints
You take me down to the bridge looking out into the distance
I jump like you did, I didn't know that you could fly
I jump like you did, I didn't know that I could fly
 

Flood the Streets

 
They can't see us in houses, behind glowing screens
They can’t hear pens and paper, come out with us
Flood the streets
It's not right, it's not right
So I sing about it, it's not right
I hope for second chances, deliver us to common ground
Take off from neutral spaces, land safely back in the crowd
It's not right it's not right so I talk about it it's not right
It's not right, it's not right 
So I talk about it, it's not right
It's not right, it's not right 
So I sing about it, it's not right
 

Fronteras

 
I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy, I do what's right
All the wells are going dry, dry they say, but not tonight
These walls make Everest look like pawns in a shop, they're here and high
I've been around a thousand years and I might stay here and fight
I cannot cross you, I dare not cross you, cross my heart and hope to die
I sometimes see you in my mind there across the border line
I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy, I do what's right
All the wells are going dry, dry they say, but not tonight
These walls make Everest look like pawns in a shop, they're here and high
I've been around a thousand years and I might stay here and fight
My sisters come in droves, my brothers come in chains, there has got to be another way
There are no countries, just mistakes, break our bread some other way 
Welcome to my country, dear darling, welcome to my country, Broken Hearted
I cannot cross you, I dare not cross you, cross my heart and hope to die
I sometimes see you in my mind there across the border line.
Welcome to my country, dear darling, welcome to my country, Broken Hearted
 

Possible

 
I can't let you fill me when I'm already full
You'll throw me off balance like a wild bucking bull
And all you tried to do was hold my hand
I've got to give a speech for you to just understand:
Now for the first time in my life
I truly believe
that my dreams are possible
You'd love to rest your heavy head up on my shoulder, I'll dream about the life I want when I am older
And then I'll want to stretch, you'll want to lie, and when I go to smile you'll have to sigh
Now for the first time in my life
I truly believe
that my dreams are possible 
Don't be mad at me I'm only sleeping
Passive and in peace, safely underneath
Only passing through, are they worth keeping?
Moving as we please, wishing never ceased, living driven we're lost in reverie
I know what you are thinking
How selfish I am with all this dreaming
But year after year after year I followed the leader
Only to know on my own visions run deeper
Now for the first time in my life
I truly believe
that my dreams are possible
 

Power to the People

 
When you know your best isn't good enough and you're paralyzed from knowing too much
There's an end to a means, there's an end to a means
I'm disappointed in all we've bought
I'm disappointed in what I'm not when I think about where I thought I'd be
There's an end to a means, there's an end to a means
Power to the people to feel not so bad
All the things we were promised as children in love
Dollars and cents never adding up
The headless horse runs free and tough
Pursue a profit at our expense, let the top down in your Benz
Who's got the gumption, who's got the sense?
There's an end to a means, there's an end to a means 
Power to the people to feel not so bad
You know that you can't help it
I know what it's like to be kicked when you are down
And I see that you are shaking
And I want to help, I don't care about the credit 
Power to the people to feel not so bad
Step down, we beg you
Step down, we pray
We pray, we pray every hour on the hour
Step down, step down, step down to paradise
 

Let's Talk About the Weather

 
You know that it's coming, I play with my hands
Resolve to sit on them, breathing  when I can
I Look deep in your eyes, a lump in my throat
My passion is seething, what if you say no?
Let's talk about the weather
I won't say your name
Let's talk about the weather
You know times have changed
Sometimes I feel helpless In this big, stupid world
The headlines, distractions, in the shadows with the girls
Let's talk about it, the way it rains no more
Let's talk about it, how when it does, it pours
Let's talk about the weather
I won't say your name
Let's talk about the weather
You know times have changed
Tides rise, Noah's Ark can float, but it won't lift all boats, you've gotta give to row
The sky’s dry, an alarm of sorts, it could be you I'm sure, so keep an open door
There's love, if we stand a chance, you better bet we can, 'cause they'll be years to dance
Call it what you want, we will mobilize, with wide open eyes, to your great surprise 
Let's talk about the weather
I won't say your name
Let's talk about the weather
You know times have changed
I'm not moving to mars, don't to want to eat out of packets
i kind of like gravity, well besides how it looks on  me
I'm packing my things in a convertible earthship boat
Below two miles of dirt hidden under my tiny house
It's got aquaponics
We've got solar and stuff
Baby stop calling my bluff
Maybe, as a last try we could, I don't know... 
Let’s talk about the weather
I won't say your name
Let's talk about the weather
You know times have changed

Soldier's Song

 
Take off your shoes, remove your coat
Come dry your face
You’ve made it home
I know it rains out in the world
I know it's cold, I'll keep you safe
Rest your tired eyes on my pillow
I'll be your strength while you lie low
I know it hurts, that's how it goes
Let it be known, lest this get worse 
Healing won't be easier, Dear
But with your help and patience near
Brick by brick we'll build a home
If word by word you share what you heard 
There are reasons for all your tears
Others will see just what you fear
Then we can try, then we can save you from your pain
Please, Friend, just try
Healing won't be easier, Dear
But with your help and patience near
Brick by brick we'll build a home
If word by word you share what you know
 

Warning Call

 
Long lies, short lives, cat's  got your tongue
Knock the door down, hide, fight or run
I come to help, the damage is already done
You're in slumber, there in the crosshairs of a gun
Why do I try? When you'd rather die?
Wake up wake up wake up
This is a warning call, everybody's sleeping
Freedom, freedom rings like a bell
No one answers
Maybe there's life after hell
Father, Brother, run while you can
Sister, Mother, hide, hide
Hopeless as all this seems
I see the truth in my dreams
This is a warning call, everybody's sleeping
 

Fire In Town

Surprise, rise and shine
You come and find me hide and go seek
Your eyes they're always kinder than mine
They bring my life peace
There is a fire in town
We won't let it burn us down
And I'm outside the lines
You're just in time
Lend me your mind, please
There is a fire in town
We won't let it burn us down
There is a hero In the eleventh hour 10,000 to zero
In your apocalyptic fantasy
There is a fire in town
We won't let it burn us down
